More guests out to the farm over the last month of real summer!
Diesel hurt himself AGAIN! We are convinced he is in to self harm. *insert eye roll* He has already seen the vet a handful of times since his initial repair and is on the mend but he exposed the bone... so he is a waiting game again. Silly horses!
When Diesel hurt himself again we had one of my dear friends from Alabama reach out to us and she offered me her training level event horse that was actually ridden by Olympic rider Andrew Palmer of Royal Palm Farms. Rhemy and my friend Nancy Cathrine, made their way up to Virginia this past weekend and I am just shocked this horse is here at Flying R! What a blessing! As they left me this weekend tears of gratitude ran down my face. When your southern belle's come through, they REALLY come through! My heart will always belong to the real south. 💕
Mike, Malin and I took to the waters this past week on our kayaks. Man did we have fun at Stumpy lake! The pictures don't even do it justice! Peaceful is an understatement! Malin had a blast till she and dad tried a new boat launch down Blackwater river and poor Malin was attacked by Bald Face Hornets. They are very aggressive large hornets that sting repeatedly! She has been to the doctor and besides large doses of Benadryl, she is on the mend. Man will she have a story to tell!
We hope you all have had a fantastic summer and we will see you on the flip side of school! 🍎
